My Day

It started out rather interesting. My mom and I were held hostage at IHOP. No, not really. It just felt like it. Her birthday is next week and that's what she wanted to do to celebrate. When we were ready to leave our server was nowhere to be found. If you were ever actually held hostage however, that's the place to do it. I brought home enough food to last through tomorrow.

Next up, I was having a nice conversation on-line and my DSL decided to go wonky. An hour and a half later when I finally managed to reconnect I opened an email from the fellow I had been talking to, wondering what he had said that was so wrong that it chased me off without a trace. This is the second time in a week I've spoken to my service provider. I don't like those people anymore. As it's All Hallow's tonight I am considering mounting my broomstick and buzzing by their windows in a show of what's to come if they don't fix the problem once and for all as they promised at the end of today's phone call. If that doesn't work, I know people... There. They've been more than sufficiently warned. Think they'll heed it? Besides, I still have my spoon.

The highlight of my day was a visit from the heater cleaning man. Yes, I now have heat in my house. I can stop wearing hoodies and vests on top of my cute pj's and I don't have to search for my gloves as I feared I might have to do soon. The bad news is he recommended I start saving up for a new heater. I think I'll move instead. If I start fixing all the things wrong with this house, I'll be trapped here forever and that's not part of the plan.

What did you do today?

Halloween Tidbit - More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That equates to nearly 9 billion pieces - enough to circle the moon nearly 4 times if laid end-to-end.

Toddler wimped out after only 30 minutes of Trick-or-treating. Ended up giving away more candy than I wanted to:)
